There are areas with high mountains, different types of forests, prairie grasslands and arctic tundra where the ground is permanently frozen. Canada is also home to many rivers and lakes. A federation of former British colonies, Canada follows the British pattern of parliamentary democracy, and the UK monarch is head of state. Ties with the US are now vital, especially in terms of trade, but Canada often goes its own way. Both English and French enjoy official status, and mainly French-speaking Quebec-where pressure for full sovereignty has abated in recent years-has wide-ranging cultural autonomy.
